Regarding a GREAT site for understanding and Visualizing regex patterns.

Hello All,

While googling on regex I came across a site named Regulex Regulex´╝ÜJavaScript Regular Expression Visualizer
I have written a simple regex ^(a|b|c)([^@]*)@(.*) and could see its visualization; one could export it too, following is the screen shot.

It may help us for understanding regex expressions. I am also new to it and exploring it.

Thought to share on forums Smilie

Thanks,
R. Singh

Thanks Ravinder,

I generally use various online REGEX checkers when when I am writing REGEX expressions, mostly REGEX for PHP code.

This is the first one I have seen that has the "visualization" done like this, thanks for sharing.

The REGEX checkers I like the best have always been the ones where we can cut-and-paste our text into the checker and then see
the resulting matches so we can easily test the input versus the output when debugging.

Next time I need a REGEX I will also try this visualization tool.

Thanks for sharing.

The idea is neat I think, but it did not correctly interpret the first thing I threw at it.
It does not seem to like POSIX character classes:
Code:
^[0-9A-Z[:space:]]
^[[:alpha:]]

--
Never mind, this site is about Javascript regex only, which does not support POSIX character classes..

Someone told me not that long ago that the next big thing in computing are Regular Expressions.
Not needing such things in what I do using computers I thought, "Why, surely it is AI?"
Then I joined here and seeing you guys using them gobsmacked me. I had no idea how important BREs and EREs were until coming on here.

However a tool like that makes them easy to understand.

(Whilst in Perl mode I will learn how to use Perl's REs.)

Thanks Ravinder, great find...
